Austria Vienna vs Ried Prediction & Betting tips
The second match day in the Austrian Bundesliga will end in the capital, in the Generali Arena Austria Wien welcomes newly promoted SV Ried. The Veilchen from Vienna-Favoriten are aiming for the first point gain after the start in Linz was lost.
However, the home game against the Innviertler will not be a “g’mahte Wiesn” – as it is called colloquially. The guests celebrated a happy last-minute victory at the beginning and now want to hold their own at Wiener Austria with a broad chest. It will be a special game for Ried head coach Gerald Baumgartner, who can look back on an Austria past both as a player and as a coach.
The favorite role of the best bookmakers is clearly given to violets. The game starts on Sunday afternoon at 16:00 p.m.
24 championships, 27 cup wins – the team from Vienna-Favoriten is now miles away from such successes. The bitter reality in 2019/20 was the lower play-off and missing the EL participation. After Christian Ilzer voluntarily broke up his tents in Vienna-Favoriten after a year, Peter Stöger returns to the coaching bench.
The coach comeback of former BVB coach Stöger at Wiener Austria seems like a sensation, but is undoubtedly also due to the situation that Wiener Austria has no financial leeway. As a result, Stöger has a double function as a trainer and sports manager.
However, his hands are tied due to the lack of income from Europe and from the spectators. With experienced Markus Suttner and Georg Teigl, two German legionaries were signed for free. Otherwise, the same team is available as in the previous year.
When Peter Stöger made a comeback to the league, the violets suffered a 1-0 defeat against LASK. The narrow defeat was not undeserved, but Austria Wien showed itself to be better and more agreeable. As in the previous year, however, there is a lack of penetration in the game forward. A peat festival is therefore not necessarily to be expected and between Austria Wien and Ried a tip on the under 2.5 could be a good idea.
After the defeat at the beginning, the violets are doomed to score in the coming rounds. Before the duel against Salzburg awaits on the fifth matchday, there are three feasible opponents. Stöger takes on the role of favorite and at the press conference let it be known that anyone who cannot handle this pressure is involved in the wrong club. Ried, Admira and WSG Tirol must not be the opponents against which the club has to measure itself.
The promotion fight in the second Austrian division was not for the faint of heart, in the end the game association from Ried had the better end for themselves. Thanks to the better goal difference, the Innviertler cheered the return to the Austrian football upper house. With a brilliant 9-0 success on the last day of the game, the promotion was fixed.
The start of the league against WSG Tirol turned out to be a real penalty festival, referee Christian-Petru Ciochirca pointed no less than three times to the ominous point. Ried was 1: 2 behind at halftime, but was able to equalize from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute, before the extremely flattering winner in the 90 + 4 minute caused pure emotion.
To be fair, it must be said that the team of referees was probably already thinking about it, because no fewer than four Ried players were more than a meter offside at the previous free kick. However, the video referee has not yet been introduced in Austria and thus Ried achieved a victory that was not regular.
The game in the Austrian capital will be an unfamiliar situation for the people of Innviertel. After relegation, the team was the top favorite in the second division and in every game Ried was expected to shape the game. The Baumgartner-Elf no longer knows the role as an outsider, but on Sunday it will be that time again.
Ried will be expected to be extremely defensive, Baumgartner will probably rely on a five-man chain again to make the spaces tight. With the lightning-fast offensive players, the promoted player hopes to create dangerous moments in the switching game.
